Operations Manager

When Friso arrived on the island in 2021, he helped forming the tours and setting up the hike trails. He still has a lot to learn about rock climbing, but he is a very good hiking guide. There are very few people that know the Tafelberg trails better than him, as he was part of the team that opened the trails. He also created the Tafelberg hiking map.

Nowadays Friso takes care of the daily operations and customer service. He is half Dutch and half Venezuelan and therefore speaks both Dutch and Spanish besides English.
